If you think embroidery is a fusty medium reserved for silver-haired ladies in rocking chairs, Mexican artist Ornella Ridone’s 50 hand-embroidered works will set you straight. Taking a traditional folk art and adapting it to her own contemporary practice, Ridone has created pieces specifically for the PMG, based on a two-week visit to our fair city last year.
